- Jun 15, 2005And for those of us who are more modest, you can get bobcat and fox urine from the local Agway to keep the pests away.-A'isha (mka Ro)P.S. Some critters aren't detered by the scent of human urine. While camping along the AT, I had a VERY close encounter with a deer at about 4 am while answering the call of nature (he came to within three feet of me wondering what I was doing). There are no bathrooms in the backcountry and given the number of animals I've seen while camping (and I've gone backpacking for over 17 years), I guess I don't produce enough of a "predator scent".

I cannot contain the secret any longer!Most wild animals will shy away from the "scent of a predator".I know that this may seem immodest for some, but have you tried "marking your territory"? By this I mean, saving your own urine and simply pouring it around the area. I cannot detect the scent, but evidently the beasties can, even after a rainstorm. I know it works for me and I have armadillos, voles, squirrels, rabbits, wild dogs and deer. I "refresh" the scent about once a month.Good Gardening to you!~ Kerstyn Gartener, MKA Teresa Olson
